The Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes (AAMRI) congratulates Anthony Albanese and the Australian Labor Party on their election win. AAMRI is looking forward to working with Prime Minister Albanese to support the medical research institute sector.

Labor has been a great champion of medical research, and AAMRI is eager to begin working with the new government to continue to strengthen Australia’s world class health and medical research sector.

“Australia has some of the best and brightest minds in the world and working together we can harness that extraordinary talent to deliver better health outcomes for the nation,” said Professor Kathryn North AC, AAMRI’s President.

AAMRI’s election statement outlined the need for a national health and medical research strategy that sets out Australia’s research priorities and investments, as well as a plan to strengthen our medical research workforce.

“Now is an opportune time to take a step back and consider new ways to better support medical research, and to make sure we are getting the most from the investments we are making,” said Professor North.

AAMRI is looking forward to working with the new Government to find ways to help deliver a research-led healthcare system that is resilient, sustainable and delivers improved health outcomes for all.

AAMRI also congratulates the Australian Greens and the independent MPs on their strong election performance.
